Two minutes running on the treadmill is better than none.
[As I tell myself every time I try to convince myself I love running before giving up and watching Man v. Food while on the elliptical.]
Two fingers in the air is a WHOLE lot more comforting than seeing just one. [I'll let you think about that for a minute.]. Knowing two words is a whole lot better than knowing none. [Trust me, when you teach the kids I do, every word counts.]
Two cooks in the kitchen is much more fun than just one. [You obviously need someone to take your orders...um...I mean...be your sous chef.]
When organic girl salad greens are on clearance for 99 cents... ...obviously two is WAY better than just one! And when it comes to Greek yogurt, I have something to say that might shock you... Two % Is Better Than None!
How many of you grew up, like me, with skim milk and fat-free yogurt?
How many of you have (also like me) been led by the socio-culturally acceptable [and endorsed] "health rule" [slash] stigmatization of anything that isn't fat free?
Must we all be peer pressured into saying "screw that" to "low-fat"?
I have to tell you: 2% Greek yogurt might change your life. Or at least your enjoyment of breakfast (or lunch...or snack time...or dinner...or dessert). Yes, I have tried full fat Greek yogurt, but that was just a little extreme for me.
Before you turn into Mama Smart and say, "But Sarah, fat free has more protein!" Yeah, Mom...ONE GRAM. And seriously, when it comes down to it...if you try to buy the large tub rather than the individual ones (like I try to do...unless there is a sale), I usually can't even eat a whole cup of the stuff--it's that thick and rich--so that extra gram of protein? Negligible.
I'm not talking about "normal" yogurt here...I'm focusing on Greek. [Although I do like 1% or low-fat plain yogurt.] But since you asked (or did you?) fat-free flavored yogurt has a ton of added sugars...and while I have been known to be a sucker for some fun flavors... ...I like to eat those only occasionally, and mostly eat PLAIN yogurt (with mix-ins...remember the baby food ?). [Trust me, I know we can't all shell out the money for Greek all the time...]
If you really have to be watching your fat and calorie intake...well, OK. But for the rest of you, I say take in the extra 30 calories or and...just...well...
Just TWO It.
Because two is definitely better than one.* [Or, none, in this case.]
